I have to finish five of these little paintings by Friday for our local art club’s 50th anniversay party. This is the third. I did it with tube acrylics which I’ve had for a while but haven’t used much. And when I tried them again I found that I didn’t much like them. They’re really too thick to work well with my painting style. So I’m bequeathing them to a friend who wants to try acrylic. I have plenty of fluid acrylics that are just fine for me!
I always do enjoy painting the little landscapes. Adding the grass strands to the sheep’s mouth was an afterthought, and I thought it improved the painting by adding a little personality and a tiny touch of “a story.” I hope whoever gets this painting will enjoy it.
